Jewel of the North, formerly know as vincegetorix
yeah, @Sacrosanct has Chromatic Dungeon with most of all you seem to require.

I'm a big fan of Beyond the Wall and Other Adventures, the tones is way lighter than OSR regular edginess, the character have a nice resilience and the game works well to help both the DM and players have fun and progress the story, no adversarial DMing stuff or gotcha. It does have some ''roll under'' mechanics in the game though, but it's not so bad, IMO.

There is also Through Sunken Lands, which is a more Sword & Sorcery take on BtWaOA.

Black Hack also has some modern design sensibilities to it as well.

Another shout for Beyond the Wall and Through Sunken Lands. Flatland Games also produce Grizzled Adventurers, which is very similar to the others but lets you put together a group of higher-level characters and send them through a dungeon in a single session.
